The Department of World Languages & Cultures is the largest and most diverse in the
College, culturally and programmatically. Our programs and courses offer multiple
opportunities for undergraduate and graduate study in language, literature, culture,
and language education. All foreign languages and their respective literatures at
the University of Utah are taught in the Department, which provides students with
a forum for research and education in more than 20 linguistic and literary traditions.
The WLC Department is now offering virtual language placement testing for students
who would like to be placed into the appropriate language class or who would like
to purchase lower-division language credits. Click the link below for the most current information about language placement testing,
